To Mr. Fred E. Busby 

As a small token of our appreciation of his untiring 
efforts and incessant interest in our behalf, for his genial 
nature, and as a manifestation of the affection we hold for 
him, we sincerely dedicate this volume of the Fabricator. 





OUR FOUNDATION 

HPHROUGHOUT the passing ages, man's life has been one 
of continued progress. Although many changes have 
taken place during this time, the primal wants of man still 
prevail. Among these is the desire for shelter from the ele- 
ments and it is to this purpose that the New Bedford Textile 
School has been founded. 

Indeed it is a far cry to the crude methods of textile 
manufacture of the past centuries. Continued progress 
demands skilled technicians. New Bedford Textile School 
has rightly been noted for the fine calibre of its graduates, 
and, fulfilling the ideals which prompted its foundation, still 
leads the field in the production of future leaders in the 
textile industry. 




HIM O ICY OF THE SCHOOL 

IDEALIZING the need of a school to train men for the ever-widening 
field of textiles, the Massachusetts Legislature, under the Acts of 
1895, Chapter 475, created a board of fifteen members, whose duties were 
to incorporate and establish the New Bedford Textile School. The City of 
New Bedford and the State of Massachusetts each appropriated $25,000 
to be used in the establishment of the school, and finally, on October 14, 
1899, the school was dedicated. 

Soon after this event, the school opened and instruction was given to 
day and special evening classes. The school at that time was but a 
modest three story building. The rooms consisted of carding, spinning, 
and weaving rooms, a slashing room, and a photographic dark room. 
There were also several recitation rooms, a director's room, and a room 
for spooling, winding, and hand looms. 

The first enrollment consisted of eleven day students and 183 night 
students. Each year saw a substantial increase in the enrollment. The 
curriculum was augmented to include knitting and chemistry. This made 
expansion imperative. The building was extended to the end line on 
Maxfield Street, and the increased space was used for a chemistry labora- 
tory, class rooms, and a knitting room. 

On April 15, 1904, Mr. William E. Hatch was appointed President of 
the school. Under his able leadership, the school was expanded still 
further to accommodate the increased enrollment. Much new equipment 
was added. The school is considered the best in this section of the country. 
The present buildings contain over 100,000 square feet of floor space and 
equipment valued at over $275,000. 

The Chemistry Department, under the direction of Mr. Fred E. Busby, 
has two fine laboratories fully equipped for any work along the textile 
line. Many striking and unusual specimens of dyeing are produced here 
in this department. 

The designing Department under Mr. Samuel Holt offers full instruc- 
tion in dobby and jaquard designing. The cloths designed here may be 
produced in the C. Y. P. and Weaving Departments which are headed 
respectively by Mr. Thomas H. Gourley and Mr. Fred Beardsworth. The 
Rayon and Testing Department directed by Mr. John Fawcett is a com- 
paratively recent addition to our school, but it is already making a name 
for itself. 

Students interested in mechanics may receive a fine groundwork in the 
mechanical course. This department is ably handled by Mr. Morris H. 
Crompton. There is also a Knitting Department which is equipped to per- 
form almost every type of knitting done by commercial firms today. 

The description of these departments has necessarily been brief, but 
we who have studied here realize that it is the training which is received 
in these departments that causes N. B. T. S. graduates to be in demand 
everywhere. 






WILLIAM ACOMB 



July 28, 1873 — January 31, 1937 

Dedicated to the Memory of Mr. William Acomb, 
Instructor and Friend 

Music, when soft voices die, 
Vibrates in the memory — 
Odours, when sweet violets sicken, 
Live within the sense they quicken. 

And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone, 
Love itself shall slumber on.

CLASS HISTORY 

TPHE year 1934 will probably be recorded in history as the year in 
which our nation began to emerge from a world-wide financial 
crisis. There is one other event which the world at that time did not 
believe important. In that year, the Class of 1937 entered New Bedford 
Textile School. Since we are now to leave our school, we realize and 
are impressed more than ever with the axiom that "all good things must 
come to an end.'" 

But our stay here has come to an end all too quickly. As we eagerly 
stand on the threshold of the world, it is with reluctance that we leave 
our alma mater — the birthplace of our true friendships, the home we 
entered young and untried and from which we emerged matured, edu- 
cated, and learned in the ways of the world. The past three years are 
now one happy memory to us. Memories are the mirror of life into 
which we gaze to review the highlights of the past. We, as humans, do 
not know where our destiny lies nor what the future may hold in store 
for us, but as for the past — ah, that is too glorious to go unheeded. 

So, for the present, we shall travel backward in the flight of time to 
the day in September, 1934, when we entered this institution. 

The first week was one of great uneasiness and confusion. We man- 
aged to get into the wrong class rooms and were more or less at sea. Our 
period of orientation was soon over and after becoming accustomed to 
the school routine, we found that the students and teachers were all right. 
We pledged ourselves to the several fraternities and the initiations which 
followed were enjoyed as much by us as by the rest of the school. Our 
class officers for the year were Harold Riley, President, Allen Frost, 
Vice-President and Mark Knowlton, Jr., Secretary. Mid-year and final 
exams soon were memories and we entered the summer vacation. 

After becoming juniors, we elected Harold Riley, President, Walter 
R. Mitchell, Jr., Vice-President, Alan Ramsbotham, Treasurer, and Mark 
Knowlton, Jr., Secretary. We can never forget the two dances which our 
class sponsored. Suffice it to say that we had never previously realized 
how many potential orchestra leaders we had in the school. During this 
year, our class was augmented by the addition of the mechanical class. 



27 FABRICATOR 

'37 



The days passed quickly and before we knew it, we were seniors, ready 
for, and face to face with the future. Our class officers were Harold 
Riley, President, John V. Hillman, Vice-President, Thomas Dwyer, Jr., 
Treasurer, and Harry Wilcock, Secretary. The Fabricator Staff was 
also elected at this time, and, throughout the year various committees were 
appointed to arrange for such necessaries in the life of a senior, as 
dances, rings, and a prom. 

Our class has been outstanding in athletics, also. We have furnished 
the school and the sporting world some of its finest athletes. Those who 
anwered the soccer call were Koczera, Kosiba, Mello, Ramsbotham, H. 
Riley, Wilcock, and Singleton who served as captain. More than half a 
team ! The coach must certainly feel the heavy foot of the march of time. 

The basketball court was well populated with our boys and it is here 
that their actions and efforts particularly reflected with scintillating lumi- 
nosity. The basketeers were Aulisio, George, Hilliam, Koczera, Kosiba, 
Ramsbotham, H. Riley, and Wilcock who was also the manager in his 
senior year. Again the coach looks longingly back to the day when he 
could depend upon these stalwarts. 

Seniors who donned Tech baseball suits were Aulisio, Hillman, Rams- 
botham, H. Riley, Simmons, and Singleton. A person does well enough 
if he's in a racket, and no less the case with Textile in tennis. Among 
those serving and driving were numbered Diggle, Knowlton, Tripp, and 
Chace, the manager. 

Prom and finals have now passed. To the faculty, we wish to express 
our sincere thanks not only for the knowledge they have imparted to us, 
but also for their many kindnesses and friendship. Commencement 
awaits us with all its hopes and promises. We depart from the school 
hesitatingly, but we are confident that those who follow us will at all 
times endeavor to maintain the high standard of the school and all its 
traditions.

FRESHMAN CHEMISTRY 

QN SEPTEMBER 14, 1936, the New Bedford Textile School was hit 
by a cyclone in the form of the freshman chemistry class. Rather 
than follow the example set by previous classes, the first year chemistry 
class with the two other freshman classes founded new precedents. Instead 
of procrastinating their money problems and waiting till the final term 
to start gathering funds together, the freshman class undertook to build 
up a treasury that would be a credit to them in their senior year. 

Another example of the initiative of the present freshman class is the 
gala affair which it is planning to present at the New Bedford Country 
Club. Rather than plan one or two small dances in the school, the class 
is sponsoring an annual affair which will give prestige to the Textile 
School. 



Watch the activities of this aggressive class, for our motto is 
"Put Textile School on the Map" 

To offer a better view of our class members, we present below:

"Little Sam" 

Sammy is a little shrimp 
This is not a fib 
The reason for his smallness is 
Sammy's lost a rib.

"Caspar" 

Dalbec's hit the papers 
You've seen him in the Post 
You surely recognize our Paul 
As Caspar J. Milquetoast.

"Big Joe" 

Joe went out for fullback 

When soccer rolled around 

The boys might have gotten somewhere 

If they hadn't stopped to clown. 



GEORGE H. DUCKWORTH 

"Ducky" 

George is the other half 

Of the team of Duckworth and Craven 

George does the experiments 

And Sam does all the raving.

Cliff is a playboy 
But playboy or not 
In the class standing 
Our Cliff is at the top. 



FREDERICK E. GEARY 

"Gigolo" 

The gigolo of our class 

Is our own Freddie Geary 

And the boys all gather round 

As he expounds his S. A. theory.

Whalley hasn't much to say 

For he takes things in a quiet way.

The chaming smile we see on Dick 
Is the one the ladies pick. 

HAZEL LEVY 

A pretty young miss we declare 

Is Hazel with her lovely blonde hair.

SOPHOMORE CHEMISTRY 

TTERE we have the class with the worst reputation in the school, yet they are the 
■*-■*■ best group of fellows in the building. As a group we are not of a bad sort. 
Even though we are composed of that type of person known as a genius, you know, 
one who is on the border line between insanity and greatness, after another year 
in the "lab" we will no longer be on the border line and we certainly will not be 
great. 

An imaginary visitor, he has to be imaginary for the public has heard too much 
about our antics in the "lab" to dare trespass within its sanctuary, might ask his 
guide : 

Visitor: "What is that blurry shadow scurrying around over there?" 

Guide: "Oh, that is Nat Stetson running around from one experiment to the other 
(the other five) trying to keep ahead of the rest of the class, for it would be 
a major catastrophe if some one should catch up with him." 

V: "Do I hear the rhythms of Benny Goodman's band?" 

G: "No, that's just Izmirian, the 'Armenian Rug beater,' swinging up a tune for 
Mabel . . . pardon me, I mean Sid Smith. You know, Izzy is about the 
nearest thing to a perpetual motion machine ever evolved, at least his tongue 
is always in motion." 

V: "I just head someone call that man a scab. Why do they do that, you don't 
have labor troubles here, do you?" 

G: "We don't. They either work or don't work here, and as their only payment 
is in knowledge acquired, the loss is all on one side if they sit down. A scab 
here is a conscientious worker — Blossom is the super scab of our class. He 
wouldn't leave his dye cups to have his picture taken for the Fabricator this 
year." 

V: "Is that man over there a camera fiend?" 



FABRICATOR

G : ''Yes. that's 'Benny' Howe, the hest candid cameraman in the city. He is taking 
a picture of 'Golden Gloves' Barry, Charley Hurley's pal, and his manager is 
none other than H. '0 Shaunessy' Miller, the best natured guy in the class." 

V: "Are my eyes deceiving me or is that a moustache on his lip?" 

G: "Yes, for two years Hudecek has been combing, feeding, and nursing that fuzz 
and it hasn't yet reached the stage where it might be classified as a full- 
fledged tickler." 

V: "Why is that man yelling, 'Pay up!'?" 

G: "That is Fred Walker, our candy man; he probably has a candy bill to meet and 
consequently he is hounding his debtors. If they don't pay him soon I am 
afraid he'll have to file a petition in bankruptcy. Yet he has an implicit trust 
in his fellowmen. Let's hope they don't let him down. The fellow he just 
cornered is 'Bull' Curry, the child of the class, who used to have an annoying 
habit of talking about others too much until that memorable day when his 
mouth was sealed forever — we hope." 

V: "What is that bubbling noise — water?" 

G: "No, but it is something just as bad for it can drown you in shot order — it is 
'Babbling' Golub who loves to talk, to talk, and talk a little more. Occasionally 
he comes out with some high-class witticism but most of them originated in 
'Joe Miller's Joke Book.' Those two pals down there near Golub are Arnold 
Aspden, the model boy of the class who came out of his shell this year, and 
his fellow Fairhavenite, Harry Avila, our class president. Harry comes to 
school to learn chemistry and nothing else. That is what he does {if in doubt 
ask Mr. Richardson ) ." 

V: "What kind of a nut is that, offering to bet anybody five dollars?" 

G: "Gagnon — well, he'll take odds on anything, and if he is betting on the time, 
place, and reason for some historical event don't take him on for he learned 
his history backward and forward and on both sides. 'Louie' used to be a 
great Father Coughlin supporter but now he has become a more conservative 
thinker in his political philosophy. Gagnon has tamed down a lot this year — 
Mr. Walkers' influence, Louie?" 

"The most intelligent member of our class may be found in back of Gagnon. 
He is 'Arnie' Ramalho. 'Arnie' has the desire to learn and the will power to 
carry out his desires, yet he certainly is a regular fellow, liked by all, and 
he is apparently the only one who realizes that today's knowledge is tomorrow's 
bread and butter." 

V: "What is that awful racket in the distance?" 

G: "That is none other than 'Whispering Jack' Ryan, who causes an earthquake 
every time he opens his mouth to speak — if you can call it that. Don't ever 
tell Jack a secret if you want it to be kept a secret. He is talking to 'Fran' 
Walsh. 'Fran' often comes to work in the 'lab' all dressed up. When 'Fran' 
isn't working he is usually arguing with Jack over something or other. Jack 
will never give in even though 'Fran' is right, and he generally is, or is he?" 

"Then there is our last member, Leo Winiarski. We didn't run across him 
in the lab because he is usually out here in back, gazing out the window, wait- 
ing for a certain someone next door to come out." 

Francis Walsh

SOPHOMORE GENERAL CLASS 



* Dexter Horvitz : "Smiley" — "Listen, I know I'm right, I c'n prove it." 

"Smiley's" relatives practically own this town and he gets anything whole- 
sale. He's smart as paint and sports one of those "ear to ear" grins at every 
opportunity. Upon graduating, he expects to go to New York to show his 
uncle how to run the shirt manufacturing business, but knows that he can 
always cash in on his smile posing for toothpaste "ads." Iss dot right, 
"Smiley"? 

George Kovar: "Kid" — "Just a minute, can I ask ya somethin'?" (Foolish question 
No. 9999 has just popped into "Kid" Kovar' s head.) 

"Kid" Kovar is the youngster of the class. Knows more about explosives 
and guns than Morgan and DuPont together. Tried to blow up the "Lab" when 
a freshman, but this year he has quieted down to making parts for revolvers 
while in the machine shop. Kovar gets more mail than anybody else in the 
"joint." He has his girl friends write him in care of the school so that his 
mother won't read his mail. Ho-Ho! Checkup! 

Christopher Best: "Chris" — "Say-y-y-y listen here . . . 'Breeze now.' " 

"Chris" is a well-mannered young gentleman who adds to the class that 
touch of culture and refinement that every well-balanced class needs. Likes to 
talk about anything not pertaining to school work, and can draw "rare" 
sketches of girls. "Chris" can take any amount of kidding and never gets sore. 
All in all, a very likeable chap.

John Gaughan: ''Johnny" — "Lets see now. . . ." "Oh! I get it." 

■'Johnny" is a Fall River lad who burns up the fourteen miles from that 
town to New Bedford every morning just to attend classes and be one of the 
"gang" at our institution. John was the mainstay of the St. William's Church 
basketball team, but as for golf — he couldn't hit a balloon with a golf club, 
but is rapidly improving his game. Expects to graduate and take over the 
United Rayon Mill which his dad supervises. Truly an ambitious lad. 

Henry Vien: "Heinie" — "Match ya for a nickel." 

"Heinie" is the only fellow in the class to sport a letter. He got it playing 
soccer, and wears it day and night. He is "tops" with members of the fairer 
sex, as he'll readily tell you himself. "Heinie" doesn't care a lot for 
schoolbooks and would like to start a sit-down strike against the sending of 
report cards home through the mails. He is taking a course in life-saving at 
the "Y" and expects to strut his stuff at the beaches this summer. We hope he 
rescues many a fair maiden in distress! 

Robert Potter: "Bob"— "Ho, Ho-o-o." 

"Bob" was cut out to be a cartoonist, it seems. He can draw caricatures of 
any of the faculty, and instead of falling asleep, as some other members of the 
class do during lectures, he uses his time to advantage drawing pictures of 
the instructor and classmates. "Bob's" voice is not too badly cracked either, 
and he is always "on deck" when the class decides to do a little harmonizing. 

Albert Louie: "Louie"— "Whadda ya' say, dollar bet?" "How's about it?" 

"Louie" is the superman from Seattle, Washington, who "seez all," "noze 
all", and bets on sure things. Excels in bowling. Plays a good game of golf 
(ask Horvitz, Gaughan, or Bob Potter about the golf game last St. Patrick's 
Day when "Louie" missed a drive and threw his best club into the water hole 
at the Paskamansett Golf Course). "Louie" is a good sport, however, and is 
always "right there" when anything worth knowing about happens.

The Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity originated in Philadelphia in 1915. This year, 
Beta observes its fifteenth anniversary, having been founded at this school in 1922. 

This past year. Beta Chapter has been particularly active and successful in more 
ways than one. It has enjoyed itself socially on many occasions and has exempli- 
fied the fraternal spirit of cooperation. 

The annual smoker was held at the Hotel Mellon in Fall River on the evening 
of October 22, 1936. This was well attended by the invited guests, active men, and 
alumni. At a joint Induction Banquet on January 6, 1937 at the New Bedford 
Hotel, the pledgees of Beta and Gamma were admitted to the fraternity. After the 
splendid manner in which the new fratres underwent the trials of initiation, they 
were welcomed whole-heartedly to the roster of Sigma Phi Tau. 

Mr. Jeandros, owner of a dyeing and printing establishment, participated in a 
fraternity social to which the public was invited. He delivered a lecture to a large 
group and everyone benefitted by his practical knowledge of chemistry in relation 
to dyeing. 

The annual convention, this year, was in Philadelphia with Alpha as host. The 
stag banquet was held on April 17th, and the formal dance in Westchester on the 
24th. Beta, in conjunction with Gamma, enjoyed their third annual dinner dance 
at the Biltmore in Providence on April 6. The affair was a fitting climax to a 
great season. 

Three active men will become alumni in June. They have done much to further 
the spirit and name of their organization and those remaining behind extend to 
them their sincerest congratulations.

The second oldest chapter in the Phi Psi Fraternity, Beta Chapter was founded 
in 1904, one year after Alpha at Philadelphia Textile School was organized. 

Beta has been particularly active this year. A new high was set in the number 
of men admitted, and these with the older fratres found much pleasure in whiling 
away the hours with carefree abandon at the fraternity house. 

Among the social highlights of the year, the most outstanding is perhaps the 
Third Degree held at the Hotel Bradford in Boston in conjunction with Delta and 
Gamma Chapters. The degree was administered in the Oval Room and the banquet 
was served in the Grille Room. 

This year, the annual convention took place in Philadelphia, April 15-17, with 
Alpha Chapter as host. As usual, this affair was well attended and immensely 
enjoyed. Another well remembered event is Beta's final dance. This will be 
remembered as the greatest ever. 

At the close of the scholastic year, Beta will lose eight active men through gradua- 
tion. However, they leave behind a competent group to carry on their splendid 
work.

The Delta Chapter of the Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity of America, Incorporated, 
obtained its charter from its brother chapters, Alpha in the Textile School of 
Philadelphia and Beta at the Lowell Textile Institute, on February 28, 1917. The 
originators of the local chapter were the honorable Elton R. Darling, Harold B. 
Sturtevant, and Raymond A. Burt. 

Following an enjoyable summer vacation, the members of Delta Chapter re- 
joined forces to commence another school year. 

The first social of the year was the annual dinner and smoker held at the New 
Bedford Hotel. Mr. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., present Supreme Consul, gave a brief 
talk concerning the organization, and the new candidates met alumni members and 
instructors who are members of Delta Chapter. 

A few weeks later, the fourteen candidates were put through the initiation paces 
and the first degree was held at the fraternity rooms. On this occasion all of the 
active and alumni members were present, much to the discomfort of the candidates. 
Two weeks later, the second and third degrees were administered at a regular 
meeting. 

As usual, the Delta Chapter was well represented in sports. Those of the 
fraternity who participated in school athletics Were: Floyd Ashworth, Tom Barry, 
Dave Braiden, Louis Gagnon, J. Edward Houghton, Bill Lachemacher, Antone 
Mello, Louis Pacheco, Jr., Stanley Pelczarski, John Ryan, Scott Whitcher, Jr., and 
Leo Winiarski. 

The activities of the chapter this year included a Christmas Party and a semi- 
formal dance in commemoration of the twentieth anniversary of the founding of 
Delta Chapter. A national convention held in Philadelphia was also well attended 
by members of this chapter. Plans are now underway for the farewell party to the 
graduating fratres. 

This year, Deta will love five members through graduation. To them we offer 
our heartiest congratulations and highly hope the ideals of the Delta Kappa Phi 
will carry them to success.

T^HE word athletics is practically synonymous with school spirit. There 
is nothing that can arouse one so as a last minute spurt by the home 
team in a maddened effort to outdo its opponents. There is nothing to 
compare with the thrill experienced when one of the players manipulates 
a difficult bit of athletic artistry to show up his rivals. 

We all have, more or less, gone through these sensations while standing 
on the sidelines lending moral aid to our boys by giving them a vocal 
pat on the back. Whatever heights we have been stimulated to, however, 
must be trivial in comparison to those experienced by the athletes them- 
selves. As in everything else, they meet adversity in their endeavors and 
it is in this latter that they reveal their true colors. They make it evident 
that they play for the sport of playing and to further the name of their 
alma mater by playing in a decent and becoming manner. They are not 
"in there" for any material gain and keep foremost in their minds that 
a moral victory is better than one ill gained. 

It is they who accomplish the deed and although their feigned indiffer- 
ence provides for them a heavy cloak of modesty, they cherish a feeling 
of accomplishment — a spiritual attainment reached only through assidu- 
ous effort. 

Such are our athletes. The New Bedford Textile School recognizes 
them for their qualities and is rightly proud of them. The review of 
their achievements which follows is indeed a small tribute for their efforts.

BASEBALL 1936 

TEXTILE vs. DEAN ACADEMY 

Dean Academy made the opening of New Bedford Textile's season rather 
disastrous by taking them over the hurdles 5-2 at Franklin. Weak hitting and poor 
base running proved to be the downfall of the Whalers despite the fact that the 
Dean hurler allowed ten walks. 

Textile's runs came in the hfth inning when Durfee singled Joe Aulisio and 
Bucky Greenough across the plate. 

One bright spot in the local's defeat was the great relief pitching by Hillman. 



TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING 

The Mill men lost their second straight game of the season at Buttonwood Park, 
losing to the Newport sailors 8-6. A six run outburst by Newport in the sixth 
inning, in which they took advantage of two hits, three errors, and three fielder's 
choices settled the contest. Textile rallied in the seventh and eighth innings, but 
the six run lead was too much to overcome. 

Hillman allowed only seven hits, but poor support in the inner defense lost 



the game for him. 



Ashworth's hitting also stood out in this contest. 



TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

Textile came through with their first victory of the season, setting back the Trade 
School 9-7. Although Voke outhit the mill students 13-12, costly errors put them 
on the short end of the score. 

Barry's homer by the flagpole in center with one on was the big blow of the game.

TEXTILE vs. HOLY FAMILY 

Holy Family took to Bill Leahy's offering for the four innings he pitched and 
scored enough runs to top Textile 9-6. The pitcher was not all to blame, however, 
as he was backed up by poor fielding and poor base running. 

Vera Hillman gave a good relief performance allowing no hits in the last four 
innings. 

N. B. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Banging the offerings of three opposing hurlers for a total of 19 hits, five of 
which went for extra bases, the local Textile nine trounced Durfee Tech 15-3. A 
hard smash to left field by D. Aulisio, scoring his brother Joe with the fourth run, 
decided the game. 

Each player on the winning club connected safely at least once, while Greenough, 
Ashworth, Gula and Durfee garnered three safeties apiece. 

TEXTILE vs. WENTWORTH INSTITUTE 

The Whalers lost their fourth game in six starts when it was clubbed for 24 hits 
by a hard-hitting Wentworth team 11-6. This game saw hits flying all over the 
lot, altogether there being 27 singles, six doubles, and a pair of triples. Bob 
Wheeler of the opponents was robbed of a home run when his drive hit the flag pole 
in deep center on the fly. 

Bill Leahy led the home stickers with a double and a triple. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER 

Textile suffered it's fifth diamond defeat of the season when it was handed a 7-2 
setback by Becker College at Buttonwood Park. 

Dick Barry gave the visitors 10 well scattered hits but his inclination to walk 
batters and his teammates' habits of making errors at the wrong moments led to his 
downfall. 

Floyd Ashworth led the batters with three hits, one a double, out of four times up. 

TEXTILE vs. BRIDGEWATER STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE 

In a thrilling contest, Textile finally broke into the win column again to score 
their third victory by edging the Bridgewater State Teachers 10-9. The locals 
played heads up baseball with Ryan and Ramsbotham turning in fielding gems. 
Ryan's great catch came with the tying run on first and one out. At this point, he 
made a beautiful one hand catch of Gannon's liner and then made a perfect peg 
to first to double up the runner ending the game. 

Winiarski pitched very well for the winners and Dave Aulisio led the offensive 
with a triple and two singles. 

N. B. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

N. B. Textile won the second game of their two game series with Durfee Textile 
by taking them over the hurdles 23-11 in a weird encounter. The game resembled 
the comedy of errors with the locals committing nine and the visitors fourteen. The 
game took so long that both coaches decided to call the match at the end of the 
eighth inning. Altogether, it lasted a little over three hours. 

Floyd Ashworth led the locals with a homer, triple, and three singles.

'37 



TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

Combining, thirteen hits along with five errors, the Millmen took the return game 
with Vocational 15-9. Textile led throughout the whole game although Hillman 
and Winiarski were pounded for 12 safe blows. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

Scoring three runs in the last of the ninth as Vera Hillman weakened, Becker 
College came through with two outs on them to beat the visiting Millmen 5-4. 

Until the ninth inning. Hillman had performed superbly on the mound for 
Textile. Then came the fatal ninth when two walks, a wild pitch, and a balk 
spelled his undoing. 

TEXTILE vs. HOLY FAMILY 

Textile closed one of their poorest seasons in recent years with a 14-8 setback 
at the hands of Holy Family. The final check up read five victories and eight 
defeats. 

Tech performed very poorly with the infield making eight errors, while Hillman 
made two wild pitches and Gula four passed balls. Textile outhit Holy Family 
13-12, but their own miscues proved too much for them. 

Tom Barry connected for the longest clout of the game, a homer, his third of 
the season. 



HERE AND THERE 

Tom Barry hit a ball so far against Durfee Textile that Bill Egan, visiting out- 
fielder, tried to ride a bicycle to catch it. 

The Textile nine was treated to a fine acrobatic exhibition at Dean Academy when 
the latter's left fielder made a beautiful swan dive over a cliff in an effort to catch 
a foul fly. 

After the Becker game at Worcester, the boys visited Madame Champagne's 
where they drank root beer to their hearts content. Here they made some fine 
acquaintances who invited the boys up for the next baseball season — but not to 
play baseball. 

In the Becker game, Bill Leahy was rounding second and on his way to third be- 
fore Vangel, Becker's center fielder, made a putout on his fly ball. He ran like a 
rabbit, crawled like a snake, and juggled the ball up and down his arm before he 
caught it while lying flat on the grass. 

Tom Barry got only two singles all season, his first and last hits of the season 
being for one base. However, he smacked eight doubles, two triples, and three 
round trippers to lead the Textile sluggers by a wide margin in this particular 
department.

SOCCER 1936 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU BUSINESS COLLEGE 
TEXTILE vs. TABOR ACADEMY 

In a drizzling rain storm, N. B. Textile opened their soccer season with a 3-1 
victory over Thibodeau at Fall River. Alan Ramsbotham scored the first goal for 
Tech, Riley and Singleton rounding out the scoring. Koczera with his nice saves 
and Gula with his long clearings were the outstanding players for the home forces. 

On the afternoon of the same day, Textile won their second game of the season 
by defeating Tabor Academy 3-0. The game was only a few minutes old when 
Kosiba shook the net for the first goal of the game. Riley, flashy centerforw'ard 
for Textile, scored the other two goals. Koczera, Tech goalie, handled but one 
shot all afternoon. 

TEXTILE vs. BRIDGEWATER STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE 
Eddie Kosiba's fourth period goal paved the way for Textile's third straight win 
of the season, a 1-0 victory over Bridgewater Teacher's College. The Millmen 
were in fine form showing at times clever passwork, but lacked the necessary punch 
in front of the goal. This was probably due to the fact that Augustine, six foot 
three inch goalie for Bridgewater, played sensationally all afternoon. Riley, 
Ramsbotham, and Gula played a great game for Textile. 

TEXTILE vs. WORCESTER TECH 

Textile received their first setback of the season at the hands of a strong Worces- 
ter Tech team by the score of 5-1. Riley, center forward for the Millmen, scored 
the lone Textile goal in the second period. 

TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING 
The New Bedford Textile School eleven got back into the win column by handing 
the United States Naval Training Station a 2-1 setback at Newport to spoil part of 
their Navy Day celebration. 



FABRICATOR

Navy opened the scoring and held a 1-0 lead till late in the third period when 
Mann, outside left, knotted the score on a pass from Kosiha. Kosiba booted in 
the winning counter midway in the final quarter. 

Kosiba. although playing with a badly sprained ankle, stood out for Textile. 

TEXTILE vs. HARVARD J. V.'s 

The Millmen scored their fifth victory in six starts by shutting out the Harvard 
Jayvees 2-0 at Cambridge. 

After playing against a stiff wind in the first period, Textile broke into the 
score column, after changing goals, on a goal by Kosiba. Soon after, Riley close.1 
the scoring with a beautiful hook shot. Textile's sturdy backs, Ashworth and Gula. 
were well nigh impregnable against the collegians and Koczera made some nice 
saves of the few shots he had to handle. 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU 

A greatly improved Thibodeau eleven avenged an earlv season defeat by whipping 
the locals at Buttonwood by the tune of 4-0. 

Red Amaral and Lopes starred for the visitors while Gula and Capt. Singleton 
played a steady game for the losers. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

An accidental goal off the toe of Gula, Textile's stellar fullback, gave Vocational 
a 1-0 victory over the Millmen. 

Vocational outplayed Textile throughout the contest and missed several golden 
opportunities in front of the goal mouth. 

Mike Riley and Singleton stood out for Tech. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

In a freezing, strong wind, Textile downed Vocational 1-0 on a goal by Mann. 

The game was evenly played by both outfits but the fury of the elements lashing 
out of the Northwest diagonally across the field made play difficult as it consistently 
carried the ball out of bounds. 

Koczera stood out at goal for the locals, while Gula played a bang-up game at 
fullback. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Led by Eddie Kosiba, a fighting N. B. Textile team defeated its arch rival 
Durfee Tech by the score of 3-2 at Buttonwood Park. It was the local's seventh 
victory of the season and the first meeting of the two teams this season. 

The Textile booters got going right away when Elton Mann, the local's speedy 
outside left, shook the rigging of the opponent's goal. Harrington of Durfee Tech 
tied up the score soon after the second half opened. Eddie Kosiba immediately 
scored two goals five minutes apart, his second coming on a beautiful corner kick 
by Craven directly in front of the goal mouth. Greenshade scored the last goal 
for Durfee. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Textile closed a successful soccer season by losing a close game to Durfee Tech 
at Ruggles Park in Fall River. Textile won seven games and lost four. 

The New Bedford boys consistently peppered the Durfee goalie, Mai one, who, 
incidentally, did not attend the school and was playing with Coach Fred Beards- 
worth's permission. 

Greenshade scored the lone goal of the game for Durfee midway in the second 
half. 

Koczera, Gula, Kosiba, and Riley stood out for the locals.

BASKETBALL 1936-37 

TEXTILE vs. ALUMNI 

The New Bedford Textile hoopsters opened their season with an impressive 
win over a strong alumni team by the tune of 39-16. The students displayed clever 
passwork throughout the game and never were behind, holding a commanding lead 
at half time of 23-9. 

Coach Szulik used many substitutes during the last two periods with Lachemacher 
showing up well with three southpaw tosses. 

Eddie Kosiba led the scorers with eleven points followed closely by Ramsbotham 
with ten points. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

The Millmen were the victims of a stunning upset by being eked out by 
Vocational by the score of 31-29. 

Vocational led 13-9 at the half and increased their lead to 24-16 as the result of 
some sensational shooting at the end of the third period. An odd incident in this 
third period rally was an accidental basket by Kosiba when a pass intended for 
McMullen caromed off his fingers into his own basket. This proved to be the 
margin of victory for Voke as a last period rally by Textile was cut short by the 
final whistle. 

Joe Aulisio led the scorers for the home forces with five field baskets all of which 
came in the second half.

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

In a last period rally, in which it scored 16 points to the opposition's two, New 
Bedford Textile defeated its Border City rivals 37-23 at the Boys' Club floor in 
Fall River. 

New Bedford Tech led by the score of 13-4 at the close of the first quarter with 
Ryan scoring three pretty shots in this period. At this point, Coach Szulik inserted 
an entirely new r team and Durfee shot into a 19-15 half time lead. The regulars 
found difficulty in evening matters in the third period but shot on to victory in the 
last period rally. 

Ramsbotham excelled on the offense, leading the scorers with ten points, nine of 
which came in the last quarter. Eddie Kosiba played a fine defensive game and 
managed to score eight points. 



TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

New Bedford Textile traveled to Worcester and lost their opening game with 
their Becker College rivals 44-25. The locals held their opponents on even terms 
up to the end of the first half. In the second half however the local's defense 
slackened up a bit and Becker went on a scoring spree putting in beautiful loopers 
from all angles. They continued these scoring ways till the final whistle. 



TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU BUSINESS COLLEGE 

Playing much better basketball than in its preceding game, New Bedford Textile 
with short snappy passes downed a strong Thibodeau College 29-16 at the Textile 
gym. The Thibodeau team consisted, for the most part of former Durfee Textile 
players. 

Alan Ramsbotham, dropping back to guard to take Ryan's old place, dropped in 
four fields to lead the local scorers. George, Kosiba, and Aulisio were standouts 
on the defense blocking many of the opponent's shots. 



TEXTILE vs. BRYANT-STRATTON 

Textile had little to offer in the way of opposition to the well-drilled Bryant 
College team and were downed 42-12 for their worst trouncing of the season. 
Failing to score a single field goal in the entire first half, Tech was never in the 
game and were behind at the half 29-3. In the second half the Whalers were a little 
better and managed to hold the opposition on almost even terms. 



TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU BUSINESS COLLEGE 

In a thrilling game played at the Fall River Y. M. C. A., Textile finally came 
out on top 43-40 after a brilliant rally by Thibodeau. Led by Fred Zebrasky, they 
nullified a big third perod lead held by the local boys. 

Textile led at the close of the third quarter 33-20 and the score at the end of the 
regular game was tied at 36 all. 

In the overtime Aulisio and Kosiba scored fields in quick succession and then 
Mann clinched the game with a beautiful left-handed shot from the sideline. As 
usual, Ramsbotham was outstanding — this time with seventeen points.

TEXTILE vs. HOLY FAMILY 

After playing ragged ball for three quarters, Textile, led by Koczera and Rams- 
botham, finally came to life in the last quarter to down Holy Family 32-18. 

After a few minutes had elapsed in the final quarter, the Parochials tied the score 
at eighteen all. At this point, the Tech students, with the insertion of Koczera 
helping considerably, suddenly tightened up on the defense and opened up on the 
offense. They threw in fourteen points while holding their younger opponents 
scoreless. 

Ramsbotham led the winners with fourteen points while George was exceptional 
on the defense. 

TEXTILE vs. DEAN ACADEMY 

After holding its own up to the middle of the third period when the score was 
deadlocked at eighteen all, New Bedford Textile's basketball club suddenly fell 
to pieces and was the victim of a 48-31 defeat by Dean. 

The game was bitterly fought throughout with the referee constantly tooting his 
whistle. As a result, three of the first string cagers were lost to the local cause on 
fouls. Dean led at the close of the third period 31-21, but the Whalers still held on 
with five minutes to go bringing the score up to 35-31. However the defense of the 
locals collapsed and the Dean bone-crushers romped on to victory. 



TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING 

The New Bedford Textile team was no match for the sailors at Newport and 
were downed 38-18. The Newporters had things their own way throughout the 
whole* game and had two strong teams which the opposing coach substituted at 
intervals. 

Ed George stood out on the defense for the Millmen while Kosiba was the best 
offensively. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

The Millmen avenged an early season setback by defeating Vocational 40-27. 
Despite the fact that Textile rolled in shot after shot in the last quarter, the outcome 
of the contest Was in doubt until five minutes from the end of the game. 

The score at the opening of the final period was 25 all. At this por~.t, Eddie 
Kosiba sank two foul tries and Textile was off on their last quarter scoring spree. 
Ramsbotham and Aulisio led the winners, the former scoring five fields and three 
fouls and the latter five fields. Ed George also stood out as he played a stellar 
floor game and Mann, although he was only in the game a short time, looped in two 
fine shots. 

N. B. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

New Bedford Textile had an easy night in swamping their Fall River rivals by the 
tune of 40-13. The outcome of the contest was never in doubt and the locals held 
a 23-3 lead at the half. 

The second half saw a flock of substitutes go in for the Millmen and they kept up 
the good teamwork. 

The scoring was evenly distributed among the five regulars with Koczera con- 
tributing a good share of the points and also taking the ball off both backboards.

TEXTILE vs. HOLY FAMILY 

Coming through with an avalanche of baskets in the last half, Textile walloped 
Holy Family 46-11 to sweep their two-game series. 

Aulisio led the Millmen's attack with fifteen points while Koczera and Kosiba 
stood out offensively and defensively. 

TEXTILE vs. BRYANT-STRATTON 

The crack Bryant College quintet of Providence took their second game with 
the Millmen 43-24 only after being held on even terms at the half. The score at 
half time was 15-14 in Bryant's favor. 

In the second half, however, the Providence boys showed an uncanny eye for the 
hoop, putting in spectacular loopers from every angle and converting rebounds into 
valuable points. The game was roughly played throughout and a large number 
of fouls called. 

George and Kosiba played very well on the defense with Ramsbotham and 
Winiarski displaying fine floor Work in the front court. 

TEXTILE vs. NAVAL TRAINING STATION 

It took a last period scoring spree by Newport Naval Training, in which they 
scored twelve points in the last five minutes, to defeat a stubborn Textile team which 
was showing its best played game of the season. The final score was 45-32. 

Textile was minus the services of Ed George, their star center who was ill, but 
they did very well even under this handicap. Naval Training led at the half 19-17 
and they increased this lead by three points with five minutes left to play to 35-32. 
From this point on, however, the sailors had everything their own way and swept 
on to victory. Aulisio led the scorers with fifteen points. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

The New Bedford Textile team closed their basketball season with a 45-26 de- 
feat at the hands of Becker. Displaying their worst basketball of the entire season, 
the locals were no match for their rivals. Textile started the game as if they were 
going to give Becker a good trimming, passing accurately and dropping in points 
one after another. About midway in the first period, the Millmen's game suddenly 
reversed and about every second pass thrown went wide of its mark. This type 
of playing lasted throughout the entire game and their defense also opened up wide 
allowing the Becker team to score at will. 

Ramsbotham with 11 points was the outstanding man on the floor.

TENNIS 1936 

Led by Elbert Tripp, the New Bedford Textile School tennis team enjoyed one 
of their best seasons in years winning ten games and losing but two. Tripp was 
a consistent winner and is one of the best tennis players ever turned out by the 
school. Textile nearly attained what would have been one of their most prized 
victories of the season when Diggle had his opponent at match point in the deciding 
match of the game with Bryant College. If Textile had taken this match, it would 
have been the first time in many years that a Textile team had defeated a Bryant 
tennis team. 

The team was composed of Elbert Tripp, Elmer Diggle, Mark Knowlton, Clif-

DEBATING 

For the first time, New Bedford Textile School has been represented in the field 
of debating. As a member of the Colonial League, the team has debated New 
Bedford High, Barnstable High, Durfee High of Fall River, and Brockton High 
School, winning all points on presentation, but losing most debates on argumenta- 
tion. This seems to indicate that the high school students have more spare time in 
which to prepare than the hard working Textile lads. 

The debating club that was formed at the start of the school year afforded its 
members the opportunity to argue on current topics. It is hoped that this club will 
continue to function, for its benefits are obvious. The team that represented Tech 
consisted of the men who were chosen by this club, namely: Clifford Flanagan, 
Robert Golub, William Joyce, Henry Taylor, and Francis Walsh. 

The team concluded the season by defeating Brockton High at Brockton. This 
was a good showing, considering that Brockton won a debate with the state 
champions.

Koczera: "Well, he's my friend anyhow."

Barylski: "What?" 
Waiter: "Beans." 



Erickson: "So that's what you think of our 
class, Hillman? We ought to flatten you out." 
Goldberg: "Oh, boy, pressed ham!" 



Banana cloth is now being used. It should 
be a nice thing to slip on when you're in a 
hurry. 



Simmons: "I've checked this ten times. 
Prof. Brooks: "Good work." 
Simmons: "Here's the ten answers." 



Cynthia: "You remind me of the sea." 
Mitchell: "Why, because I'm restless, wild

A green little freshman in a green little way

Williams: "Why is chemistry like love?" 
Chace: "Because the lower the gas, the 
greater the pressure." 



Presby: "Pa, what is the Board of Educa-

Father: "When I went to school, it was a

car." 

Tripp: "Well, why didn't you run behind 
a taxi and save a quarter?" 



Wilcock: "Going hunting without any bul-

Mrs. Gourley: "On your way home, will 
you ask that girl at the store to — ." 

Mr. Gourley: "The one with the blue eyes, 
blond hair and dimples?" 

Mrs. Gourley: "Never mind, I'll get it my-

"The secret of education lies in respecting 
the pupil." (No insinuation intended). 



Prof. Busby: "How many times have I told 
you to get to class on time?" 

Dwyer: "I don't know, I thought you were 
keeping score." 



Mello: "Is the proprietor in? I want some 
screen doors." 

Gundersen: "He's in, but he's out o'doors." 



A Morning In The Senior Lab — 1937: 
8:30— Roll call. 
8:31 — Tripp, Gundersen, and Simmons get 
to work. 

8:32 — Singie hollering, "Pay up you guys." 
8:45 — Remainder of the class rolls into the 
lab. 

8:50 — Dwyer arrives (late as usual). 
9:15 — The class gets to work. 
9:20 — Time out for lunch. 
9:45 — Dwyer, Frost, and Aulisio go out to 

play the boards. 
10:00 — Kenney and Mitchell go downstairs 
to play checkers. Horvitz and Levine start 
arguing. Armitage and Chace enter discus- 
sion as soon as word "woman" is mentioned. 
10:15 — Wrestling matches: 
Gundersen vs. Wilcock 
Horvitz vs. Levine 
Aulisio vs. Mike Riley 
10:45 — Time out for testing strength on the 
tensile strength machine. Al Ramsbotham 
champ, as usual. 
10:50 — Bud Riley caught squirting water. 
11:00 — Entire class retires to the back room 
for community singing and stories (shovels 
applied freely). 
11:30 — Mr. Brooks enters and the class re- 
luctantly returns to the lab. 
11:45 — Fellows sneak back one by one to 

look out the windows. 
11:55 — A mad dash for the exit and yells of 
"Gimmie a smoke." 



"Man is to man either a god or a wolf." 
Who said that? 



"Advice is like kissing: it costs nothing 
and is a pleasant thing to do." 



THROUGH THE TEXTILE KEYHOLE 
(continued) 

What happened to Singie's high school 
ring? 

Who won the checker championship be- 
tween Mitchell and Kenny? 

Why the windows in the back room were 
suddenly cleaned by some of our more in- 
dustrious students? Did some one new move 
next door? Hrnm! 

Did you know that Mike Goldberg is one 
of the gayest men about town? Also the 
surrounding towns. 

It must be something that causes Bud Riley 
to travel all that distance. 

Fischer, the quietest boy in the school, cer- 
tainly makes himself heard as he pounds his 
way through the bridge when he leaves assem- 
blies at 3:45. 

What was more enjoyable than those jam 
sessions "out back" where we would pound 
out tunes? Benny Goodman? Who is he? 

How did Harry Wilcock lose his front 
teeth? 

You should meet some of Stan Koczera's 
aquaintances. 
We'd also like to know why — 

The lab on Friday afternoons either re- 
sembled "The Deserted Village" or an exag- 
gerated version of "The Swing-It Frolics"? 

Why the Brockton Fair was so popular with 
Horvitz and Levine and Chace and Wilcock? 

How does Bud Riley get so much water in 
one little rubber tube? 

We think Harold Williams is keeping some- 
thing from us. 

If Remillard drinks much more beer, he 
will look like a beer barrel. 

Which reminds us that if Panek eats at 
the Chinese Restaurant a little more, he will 
resemble a native of China. 

Did you know that Ed Gundersen is a 
prominent member of the "She Done Him 
Wrong Club"? Ditto for Chace. 

Who started all this, anyway?
